Experience Creates Great Experiences – Longevity and Success
Not many companies can match the years of experience, stability and integrity that Brush HIll Tours/Gray Line of Boston offers. The Anzuoni family has been at the forefront of the transportation business since 1920 when George A. Anzuoni, Sr. founded Service Bus Lines. Service Bus was the first motorcoach company to use rubber tired, non-rail vehicles on the eastern seaboard.
George A. Anzuoni, Sr. acquired Brush Hill Transportation Company in 1954 and designated his son “Larry A. Anzuoni, Sr.,” to take control of the bankrupted commuter line. At the time, the company offered transportation to those employed by the large estates on Brush Hill Road in Milton, Massachusetts. The Brush Hill Transportation also provided transit service on two commuter lines.
The Right Transportation Company for the Right Reasons
As the company began to grow, Anzuoni continued to pursue new avenues of service and astutely assessed the growing needs of the public. The time had arrived to acquire modern equipment in order to compete with some of the larger motorcoach companies doing business in the area. Brush Hill’s charter business began to grow and soon provided service to many prominent businesses, schools, senior recreation departments and individual clients on board.
In 1981, Brush Hill Tours obtained a sightseeing license in Boston that opened the door for new opportunities in the revived tourism and convention marketplace. In the early 1990s, the Gray Line Sightseeing Franchise or ‘diamond’ for the Boston and Cape Cod area was awarded to Brush Hill Tours. Gray Line is a 102 year old worldwide sightseeing organization; “Truly The Local Experts” in well over 700 Gray Line destinations around the globe.
Brush Hill Tours offers a full schedule of one-day Boston and New England tours, as well as the Beantown Trolley shuttle, a San Francisco style trackless trolley car, with a fully narrated 105 minute tour of Boston and point to point shuttle service along the tour route.
